We’re Glad You Are Here!
Everything needed for participation in the service is included in our bulletin.
The best way to understand and get a feel for our church and worship is to come and join us! You don’t have to know anything about the Christian faith, the Bible, or the Anglican tradition to come and enter into worship with us.
Our 10:00 AM services last about 1.5 hours. (includes a church nursery and children’s church)
Prior to dismissal at each service Announcements are shared.
Immediately following the 10:00 AM service we offer a time for coffee and conversation in the fellowship hall.
Typically, we stand to sing, recite the Creed, and for the reading of the Gospel. We sit while the Bible is being read and during the sermon. We kneel to pray.
The ushers direct each row to the altar rail. You may stand or kneel to receive Communion. To receive the bread in the traditional way, place one hand over the other and the bread is placed in your palm. You may consume the bread and drink from the chalice or dip the bread into the wine when the chalice is brought to you. After receiving communion, please return to your seat by the side aisle.
Holy Trinity encourages children too young to receive Communion, or others who do not wish or are not able to receive communion for any reason, to come forward to receive a prayer of blessing.
Children of all ages are also welcome to remain in the worship service with you, if you prefer.
In Anglican worship, not every Sunday is the same. Instead, our church year moves through different seasons where we remember and celebrate events in the life of Jesus. This helps us to see our lives as part of a bigger story. Through the different seasons of the year, we remember all that God has done in history and is still doing.
These are the symbolic colors used in the sanctuary for the different season of the church.
Advent: Sarum Blue (like the blue of an early morning dawn, before sunrise)
Christmas: White/Gold (holiness and majesty)
Epiphany: Green (renewal and promise of new life)
Lent: Purple (symbolizing pain and suffering)
Easter: White/Gold (holiness and majesty)
Ordinary Time: Green (renewal and promise of new life)
There are two types of lectionaries in the Anglican Church: a Eucharistic (or “Sunday”) lectionary, and a Daily Office lectionary for Morning and Evening Prayer. The lectionary is taken from the Book of Common Prayers.
